Mad Season!!



My nephew couldn't be cuter!! I love the little guy so much!
If he didn't cry in the middle of the night, and breast milk wasn't
his meal of choice.
 I'd totally steal him.
His funny little hat reminds me of this and this!

Other deep thoughts!

I am ripe for an awesome YARD SALE!
Dumpster Diving can't be soon enough!
I love the overly blossomy smell in the air!
I love to see what others find at yard sales!!
I am envious of the SNAP attendees!
I dream of an amazing summer vacation!!

Happy Spring!

Auntie of the YEAR!!



When my sweet niece's were dropped off for a sleepover
Sdy let me know how excited she was.
She said "I can't wait till tomorrow!!"
I was quietly patting myself on my back! 
"I am such a fun auntie I thought!
Then she stated. "Your hair looks
so crazy when you wake up in the morning!"
 I couldn't help but agree!!

Ninety Nine, Rubish and The Gap!!

My favorite 99 year old friend  had a birthday this week!
My new favorite and fast way to decorate 4 a party?
Paper plate polka dots! Cute, easy and CHEAP!!




I wanted a dog prof trash can. I have walked by this for
days at the thrift store. It was GROSS!
This is the first project  to date
that I have dry heaved while re-hab-ing!
(PS Love the show Rehab Addict...what a fun life she leads
plus she is super tough for a little lady!)
(Primer on lid!)



After!



If I don't smell like Gap "So Pink"
I forget who I am.  Today I went here.
I think Gap is pricey..but not it's outlet.
T-shirts for under 10 bucks. Cute shoes 8-10.
Flip flops 3.00. Most things are 50-70% off.
The baby clothes to die for!!
Check it out! Who doesn't look better in CHEAP?



I have another finished project
but sadly my point and shoot camera
is totally on the fritz...GRRR!!


I'll see what I can do and post soon!
Happy beautiful summer like day!!

Washi Tape



Washi Tape is so darn cute!
I bought a roll the other day and
paid a lot! It hurt for a cheap
girl like my self to shell out
so much dough for a tiny roll of tape!
Yesterday my friends from Studio 5
let me know Target has washi tape
in a four pack for 4 dollars!!

Looks like I need to pop into Target!

Happy Spring!

*Today I felt frazzled and out of sorts! Stress is
my middle name...more so lately.
Today as I walked into church I noticed
no one else was walking in w/ me.
I walked in and sacrament meeting was just ending.
It was then I realized church started at 1 o'clock and
not 2.  It's WORK that starts at 2 daily! Sighhh!
HELGA!

*Today I taught Nursery. I held up this picture and asked my sweet class
of two year olds who this was. Hoping they'd recognize Jesus.
A sweet little Blakely stated. "Oh that is Jesus and Mary"
Her voice so quiet and super sweet!
Hello I didn't know that till I was in High School!!!

* Today I took the three kids who where in
nursery out to a grassy area to run and play.
My sweet special needs co-teacher was walking quietly behind me.
I prompted the kids to look both ways before we crossed
the deserted parking lot. After the kids played for a few minutes
I looked over and noticed my co-teacher still standing across the parking lot.
I called to her to come over and play w/ us but she refused.
I quickly ran over and asked her why she wouldn't join us.
She "couldn't cross the street w/ out holding my hand"!
So sweet and innocent!

*Nephew in nine days or less!

*Leggings at church? Undecided!

*Easter candy? YES PLEASE!

Happy Easter!

Good News!!

 He is not here; he has risen!
Matthew 28:6

Happy Easter! And Happy Birthday to all my 
family April Birthdays!

See gifts below! Dollar store forms
and die cut flowers! Super fun craft to make!

Daffy Dills



Today it's this tiny 79 cent flower
that brings a smile to my face!
Happy Spring!

Hers!


This weekend I found the above pillow case.
Hours and hours of work went into this little lady I am sure!
I looked and looked for "His" but couldn't find "him".

Pablo

While talking to my seven year old neice, she asked where I was yesterday. I said I went to eat w/ a friend who would soon be getting married. She said "Oh who is she going to marry!" She dosen't know my friend or her boyfriend but I told her his name is Pablo. She looked at me for a minute and stated..."Does she know she is marrying a Backyardigan?"
